I have to say that this over priced entertainment was really quite sad. Baby tigers on very short chains, mock croc show, elephants chained up etc really don't do it for me... read more

On our way to Hutsadin Elephant Hospital we saw the sign Elephant Village and drove down there. Realized immediately that this was the wrong place. A very bad kept place! Continue a little further on the main road and you will come to Hutsadin, a totally different experience where the animals are taken care of in a fantastic way. Warning,... More

We were looking for hutsadin and was dropped off here. Immediately I felt something was wrong. A lady came over to offer elephant rides. The place is dirty, murky and overpriced. Thanks to my local call card, I called Hutsadin and discovered this is not where we wanna be. Saved the day and had a great time at the real... More

I'm from Africa and love wild creatures to be wild but don't let me put you off. It's a great chance to get up close and personal with these wonderful creatures. You can get a ride on them buy food to feed them or just have a cuddle. The elephants are very gentle creatures and love affection just give them... More

WE visited to see the snake and crocodile shows which were fine, we saw the usual elephant chained by its foot in obvious distress begging for food [ you pay to give it the bananas just beyond its reach] , we also saw the young elephants being kicked and pushed into line to entertain . We left feeling a bit... More

Nice timepass, specially if you have kids. There was a baby elephant who entertained them with its tricks. Ticket price included an elephant ride. Its quite safe as the elephant handlers are very efficient and a laughing and happy bunch

My guide took me here after I said not to, I personally thought it was very expensive for what it was and really thought they were just after money for a elephant ride, if I was shown around the creatures and explained about them I would of thought more the facility, but although I went on a ride which I...
